We are passionate about the effect art can have on people. Nothing warms the heart more than seeing the delight on the face of a child as they turn the mirror around to reveal the magical transformation they have undergone as they were face painted. This is even more powerful when that child has been undergoing extreme emotional or physical hardship, and the face painting provides a brief escape and a moment of delight.
Skincognito therefore looks for opportunities to provide volunteer face painting (and free face painting training) in areas where it can make a big impact on the lives of disadvantaged and unwell children. We provide a free service to several AIDS orphanages in Africa and the two childrens hospitals in Sydney. If you are interested in becoming involved in either of these services with us, we would love to hear from you.
